A request from myself to myself
Updated: Sep 2
Part of my morning practice (which includes physical excercises, chanting mantras I formulated for myself, prostrations and meditation) is expressing my request of myself. It can also be seen as an expression of my deepest wish and intention.
I'm sharing it here because it may inspire some to formulate their own request/wish/intention and use the formulation for self-direction. I find it's a good practice, to express in words, give voice to and hear myself say my wish/intention.
This is my request (originally in Hebrew, my mother tongue):
May I always turn to wonder, freedom and beauty with all my heart, mind and soul. May this intention guide my way and imbue all my actions. May I walk its path with my heart awake, my eyes open and my spirit firm.
